So it is back! :beer:
I just registered at the UK Creed website but they dont ship overseas :(
A big bottle of Agua Brava & Varon Dandy were always requested by my uncle (to my father), to be brought back from Spain whenever we summered there. He said Varon Dandy reminded him of his childhood...
Having only seen the title and not reading your post yet I was going to suggest VIW & MI. Guess you got your answer.
I was going to say the same. lol
I heard it from an SA, but I’ve been misinformed by them before. I asked after noticing the flacon availability on the UK site.
While I left the store it occurred to me that maybe she got...
All Le Labo's line had a price hike today
I hear they're going to re-release this one during the summer, in limited quantities, flacon size only.
Frederic Malle's whole line had a price hike April 1st
Frederic Malle's Geranium pour Monsieur
One Man Show. ;)
When I read this thread title I immediately thought, "Boston summers." Lol
Highly anticipating testing out Selection Verte, and Eau d'Orange Verte this summer since they're new to my arsenal.
Do you layer these on or mix them in an atomizer?
I have flacons of all the Creeds you listed except Erolfa & Feuille Verte.
Any word of a Feuille Verte release date?
We were at Grafton in Harvard Square; love their single malt selection!
I'd go with any strong gourmand, or something with cinnamon. :wink:
The things those women did to me when I was 19 :beer:
Most of Chanel's Les Exclusifs line.
What do you wear when going out on the town (i.e. clubs, lounges, trendy bars), and have you gotten feedback on what you had on?
Just a little story:
I had two noticeable incidents occur to me...
In no particular order:
Silver Mountain Water
Acqua di Gio
Watching To Live And Let Die right now and he does pat some cologne on his face that he's sprayed into his hands from a blue aerosol can with the words "Right Stick" on it (thanks HD).
What timing...I was just at the Chanel boutique in Boston a few hours ago picking up my 6.4oz of Sycomore. It was out of stock so I had it ordered in this past weekend. Got Bois de Iles in the same...
I own 14 Creeds and can only make 2 of these blends. LOL
Anyone have proper mixing-ratio information on these?
Creed : Frederic Malle
Since Feb 14, 2011 I've spend $7025.85 on fragrances.
Had to create an Excel spreadsheet to keep track, and I know a few bottles slipped through the cracks 'cuz I couldn't find the receipts.
Creed Green Irish Tweed
Similar in name, a basenote, and probably some other things, but two very different fragrances to me; I find one to be floral, and the other woody. One never made me think of the other, so I never...
Like I said, I get blackcurrants in two of the three, but I have no clue what violet leaf smells like, so it could be there.
I do smell a veiled mint when I smell the spray tops/caps of all three,...
Best: Creed Windsor (8.4oz)
Worst: Clive Christian 1872 (1.7oz)
I have three Creed Green Valleys and they all smell different. There is definitely a common thread among the three but they all vary—in a significant way.
As I write this comparison I have...
I’ve read that many times on BN. Good thing I use Crest 3D 'cuz I've never made the toothpaste association.
The smell always reminds me of the freshly plucked mint leaves I used to pick out of...
+1 for Carnal Flower (use sparingly)
French Lover smells just like Bois D'Orage to me :wink:
JK....but it does smell a helluva lot like my flacon of Creed Spice and Wood
Geranium pour Monsieur is my new favorite spring scent!
There are many in my collection but the two I look forward to wearing the most are:
Frederic Malle Geranium pour Monsieur
I love my bottle of L'Humaniste!
Smells like my go-to club drink--Sapphire & tonic!
I never get the watermelon or any citrus notes from any MI I've worn, albeit I have only worn the newer versions. Had samples, went in on a split of a new flacon from Creed Boutique, bought a bottle...
I assumed you meant Original Vetiver by Creed and not Vetiver 1948.
I find Creed Windsor to be very buttery, albeit more akin to the smell of simmering a large pad of butter in preperation for making a sauce.
Yep, I didnt like the bottle I ordered so I got another one with a different batch number that I liked. I set the first one aside for a while, and now that I smell it again the strong pinapple notes...
I wrap some teflon/plumber's tape around the stopper on my opened flacons.
Makes for a pretty tight seal.
Well, prices went up again at the beginning of this month.
$219.19 at Fragrancenet, now.
Aedes caught up with Barney's prices.
I go get a cut every 2 weeks and my favorite part is at the end when my barber uses a straight-razor on the back of my neck followed by Pinaud Clubman.
I loved how I smelled after the cut so...
Try Creed's Original Vetiver and see how it works on your skin.
Creed Spice and Wood (95% similar)
So, I have a whole bunch of Malle samples I get showered with at Barney's that I never use, so I decided to try on this one sample of Frederic Malle Bois D'Orage that I had kicking around and as soon...
Any word on a release date?
I ordered from them last week when their site said it was "in stock." I even called to confirm it was in stock. A few days later I got an email saying it wasn't in stock and the order would remain...
I was talking to an SA at Neiman's the other day and she said that Creed wasn't discontinuing it, rather they were pulling it off the shelves for the next 10yrs or so. How she came about this...
To quote myself form another thread..."The new batch smells like how I do after coming home late from an evening in my suit (wearing Himalaya), followed by some drinks and cigars at Cigar Maters. I...
Haha, I think I was the one who bought it :tongue:
Anyways, it just came in and it's ashy...i thought it was just me but i put on some of the sample i had on my other arm and they're very, VERY...
I had a bottle of D&G Mascline in undergrand and went through it so fast!
You wont go wrong with the Creed Royal Water recommendation
I was just told this morning, by a sales associate at Creed Boutique NYC, that Green Valley is discontinued.
Definately an anomaly and outlier. I have it recorded.
Thanks for the info!
Oh don't get us started on fake Cubans...lol.
I'm just glad I have a good collection of friends who travel to Cuba and dont smoke. I can always send them some cash and direct them towards the...
I didn't download it. I compiled it from numerous authorized retail stores and from friends' collections, as well as my own. I sorted them into two categories; "observed" and "reported." Only...
See post #26
Try 1:1 of GV:FdB
Has anyone verified this information? If not, I guess we won't know for sure until the next bulk shipment comes in from France.
Just got Green Valley today and I LOVE IT!!!
I dont know if its just me but the initial blast reminds me of cutting quality wood with a sliding miter saw (just helped the gf...
Mitch Hedberg was awesome!
Anyways, I'm glad I just got myself a bottle of '48. It's a blind buy for me but I've always wanted to try it seeing that OV is my signature scent, and of course now...
How much was the flacon, if you dont mind me asking?
Hahaha. No thanks, I have my hands full analyzing human DNA for my thesis.
This Creed analysis only arose out of my personal frustration from not knowing where to buy legit bottles online.
Wow, I grew up with the understanding that wearing NO fragrance pre-workout was Gym Etiquette 101. :|
Yeah, at first I only found 01, 02, and 03 at the end, but with the help of the people on this forum I've got a few numbers ending in 04 now.
Makes me think: Could this be representative of the...
Thanks for providing me with the data!
Could you please post any other Creed numbers you have?
I wrote that the 2nd letter representing the scent ID was only used for the 7-character system.
Thanks for the number!
Meh, I only joined this site because of the wealth of Creed info/discussion on here. :huh:
The rest of the scent ID codes:
(remember, these only apply to the 8-character lot system)
**EDIT: codes have been cut&pasted in OP**
I know I said I didnt care about the pre-2008 lot numbers but being the type of scientist I am I get annoyed when there's a problem that can't be solved.
So, I did some more analysis of the...
Even though I didnt originally want to include testers in my analysis, I've started to notice a pattern about their lot numbers:
The 4th and 5th digits seem to be switched with the last...
What are the lot numbers of your Windsor bottles?
Your BuP is a 2008 version.
The scent ID list I have is an updated 2011 version so maybe "21" used to be the ID code for Baie de Genievre in the past, but I can assure you the current ID code is...
Thanks for the compliment!
Hopefully, with this info we can start buying online with more confidence. :)
Are you sure your number isn't CA12Z05? Because "21" is the current ID number for Santal Imperial and "12" is the ID number for Baie de Genievre.
05 would be the year (although I had very few 2005...
Doesn't look like those summations account for post 2008 bottles. ;)
Will have to consider this one an outlier as well, until I get more numbers of 75ml BduP's that were purchased from the same location. But it's duly noted.
Give it some time. I've heard from secondary sources that Mr. Creed himself prefers "aged" batches over newer ones. I guess it's kind of like a wine, seeing that they're both comprised of organic...
Yes, as a scientist I agree with you! I would love to have a data set in the thousands to increase my confidence interval, but I'm merely posting what I've been able to extrapolate from the data...
Yep, the inserted "B" is assumed to be for "B"atch year...I should have mentioned that when I explained the "A" to "C" change. But I dont have enough serial numbers on the latest 2010 versions so...
Yes, that is their reference number. The "10" is the year, the "075" is the size in ml (I bet you have a 2.5oz/75ml bottle ;) ), and "22" is the scent ID for the Vetier (1948) EDT version.
Yes, I forgot to add that on the latest batches (also seen on Aventus), it seems that they are replaceing the "A" with a "C" which stands for "C"reed...pretty logical.
My data set consisted of 86 serial numbers and this is the first I've seen of an 01, so for the time being i'll have to consider it an outlier. But this is good, the more info I'm given the...
So, after collecting a list or LEGIT Creed lot numbers from numerous sources, I decided to run some analysis on the Creed lot number mystery. It was pretty straight forward once I glanced at all...
This may be a stupid question but is there any Creed out there that smells like Pinaud Clubman? :huh:
I just got back form the barber shop and oh how I love the smell of Pinaud Clubman splashed...
I had a Himalaya with no lot number but it smelled just like the samples I got from Creed...is that wierd? :huh:
